Traditional Marketing Techniques

Traditional Marketing Techniques

Recently, I spoke to two entrepreneurs about possible ways of marketing their business. I sensed from our conversation that they were not fond of online promotion. They were not knowledgeable about online marketing and they were looking for an alternative way to promote their business. Therefore, I did not suggest any digital marketing media such as websites, blogs or social media. My suggestions were time-tested old school techniques.

Get involved with the community by joining the Chamber of Commerce or Rotary. These organizations will help you get connected with the local community. You can participate in charity fundraising events, donate your time and services, or do public speaking engagements that demonstrate your expertise on a particular topic.

Mail/email marketing is a strategy to connect with your customers and prospects. You can use mail/email to send out routine information like appointment reminders, but you can also use mail/email to send out marketing materials like newsletters

Newsletters are a means of keeping your consumers informed. Your newsletter may include news articles related to different topics ranging from industry news to current promotions. Giving out tips is a customer service technique of reassuring customers that you care about their satisfaction, even when they don’t need to come into your office or store.

Attending trade shows and fairs will create brand awareness in the community for your business. This gives potential new customers and suppliers a chance to view your brand. Something as simple as a free sample of your product or service can be a stimulus in creating interest.

Hopefully, you found some of these suggestions helpful.
